About Open Heart Magic

Open Heart Magic Charity Team members are champions of bringing magic to hospitalized kids during the time in their lives when they need it most.

As a registered nonprofit, Open Heart Magic (OHM) has pioneered an innovative way to reach children who are being treated for serious illness through the surprise, excitement and wonder of magic performed right at their hospital bedside.

OHM currently has 105 Volunteer Hospital Magicians working in 9 hospitals in the greater Chicago area, one-on-one with patients and their families creating magic, and teaching tricks to kids and their siblings. OHM Hospital Magicians improved the hospital experience for over 7,750 kids and their families in 2014.

Quite possibly, the best Charity Team in Chicago!

Our goal is to see 10,000 kids a year by the end of 2015. And, with the help of our Charity Team athletes, this audacious goal will become a reality.

Charity Team members do it for the kids, plain and simple. They run faster, jump higher, swim farther, and raise funds for Bedside Magic because of stories like this one:

"I am the mom of a 10 year old kid who was hospitalized this past fall undergoing a bone marrow transplant. I am writing you with the sad news that he passed away after almost 5 years battling cancer.

I wanted to reach out to you because Tuesdays were very special days for him at the hospital. He did look forward to the time when one of the Hospital Magicians would come to his room and teach him a new trick. He would even tell us, dad and mom, to leave the room so that we would not learn the tricks. It was almost magical to watch him redo the card tricks to us. You see, our son was a shy boy, but with magic tricks, he would just get confident, and perform. It was beautiful!"

Our runners and athletes have an opportunity to help Open Heart Magic create more stories like the one above. They understand how powerful their impact is. Their courage, energy and dedication to the kids is inspiring.

Most importantly, OHM Charity Team members are superheroes who come from all walks of life. From serious Crossfit athletes & marathoners to first time-runners, they all have one thing in common: They've all made the choice to be awesome!
